Blizzard axes Diablo III skill trees

Hot on the heels of the news that Diablo III won't be coming out until at least 2011, we get this tweet saying that the skill trees are being removed for another system. Yes, those beloved skill trees you see in a lot of games won't be making it in the third Diablo game so that begs the question, what will there be to replace it?

I'm more disappointed in the news of the game's release schedule than this so the changing of how skills are managed isn't much of a factor for me. I am all for something new and different and hopefully, more innovative to come around. If skill trees are a thing of the past for Diablo, then bring forth the new hotness.
